This has been me for the past week.
On Sunday, Jesse and I went a friend’s house for dinner and as we made guacamole and shrimp,
we they were discussing what a horrifying decade the 20′s are. I mean, don’t get me wrong, they were touting the benefits of the extreme highs that come with feeling like the world is your play ground, but they were also talking about the painful decisions that come with it.
I don’t know about you, but as a twenty something on the cusp of graduation, I feel like I am making a life changing decision daily. I mean, it is exciting to feel like your life is one way this week, only to discover it is so much more the next. But the real reason I am having internal panic attacks this week is because I have a hard decision to make. One that really will alter where I end up and what I do and I don’t know what the right decision is. I am sure one day I will fondly look back on this moment of blindness and feel pleased with the choice I made, but right now it is wretched.
I was accepted to the ODYSSEY program in Quebec which means 9 months in a high school teaching English and becoming fluent in French.
And then the Journal where I work offered me a full time position which is purposefully tailored to my interests and strengths.
I was asking my dad advice tonight and he suggested in all seriousness that if I want them both equally, I write them down on a scrap of paper and make a draw out of it. Thanks Dad…
Tomorrow I booked an appointment with the Career Centre so I can whine and lament to a professional, but if all else fails, I can always draw it out of a hat..
What tactics do you use to make hard decisions?
